My husband and I went to Jenolan Caves and stayed for 2 nights last week at Caves House. We used to visit often but hadn't been there for 11 years. We had a great time and have resolved to come back more often. Caves House has a great character and a real sense of history about it. We stayed in...

By staying in the original guesthouse, while lacking in 5 star creature comforts, such as air conditioning, a swimming pool, in room entertainment, the experience allowed us to really imagine (and feel) the opulence of a bygone era. The architecture is magnificent as are all the internal decorative features such as the woodwork and period furniture. The house and the...

We stayed at Jenolan Cave Cottages for 2 nights in January 2017. I travelled with hubby, my 3 year old, and my 2 nieces 11 and 13. We had an absolutely brilliant time. The cottages are 8 km from Caves House, and all as perfectly described in the reservation confirmation and website. There are 8 self contained cottages are in...

Staying in Jenolan Caves house is an excellent option as there is so much to see here that an in and out visit just doesn't do it justice. The rooms are fairly standard and clean with a fridge available. The downfall is the service in the restaurant, where it is really obvious that some training is required. We were under...

You go to Jenolan for the caves. That's it, caves - stop. The accommodation is old, tired, lacking in investment and bereft of trained staff. Staff are nice, friendly, helpful and trying their best to bumble through jobs for which they have received no training. The quality of the restaurant meals are fine, the service however reflects the training (lack...

I have visited Jenolan Caves House several times in my life. I loved it as a child and I still love it now. Caves House is a beautiful old hotel with authentic furnishings. There are photos and historical objects down every hallway and lots of areas to sit and read or relax. We stayed in the Mountain Lodge. Our bed...

This very old building, recently refurbished, reflects the opulence and g5randeur that must have attracted 6the visitors long ago. The room we were in was spacious and had a radiator system and pipes that were decades old. There was no TV or Wi Fi, for which many thanks. The dining room was vast and one of only two "Grand Dining...

Jenolan Caves House is a special place that has genuine old world charm. It's terrific for couples or families with so many hikes and cave tours available. The staff is really friendly. My only issue is that the place is looking a little run down and past its prime. Cobwebs in the windows, peeling paint, carpet stains. It also seemed...

My partner and I stayed one night in the beautiful Jenolan Caves House. The room was lovely and check in was easy and we felt welcomed. It is such a beautiful house in a beautiful setting. However, the restaurant service and staff were disappointing. We attempted to eat at the bar (at 7.30 pm) only to be told there was...

I was surprised how cheap a room at the Jenolan Caves House was. When we arrived I discovered why, it was a small room with a double bed, a sink and a mini fridge. No TV or en-suite. Fair enough I suppose. The grand old building was beautiful and the restaurant is charming serving hi quality meals. Can't complain about...
